    One RINO down?

    Hagar: Rumor is that Paul Ryan may resign as U.S. House speaker, Scalise will replace him, Amodei says

    Nevada's 2nd U.S. House District Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, said on Nevada Newsmakers Monday that Rep. Paul Ryan may soon resign as Speaker of the U.S. House.

    Amodei said he was repeating a rumor that's around Capitol Hill.

    "The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker," Amodei said.

    "Now that is interesting because nobody has talked to members (of the U.S. House) on how they are going to vote (on new leadership)," Amodei said. "Now, maybe they have talked to all of the members but me. I don't know, so that is the rumor mill from last week."

    Scalise, from Louisiana's 1st U.S. House District, is currently the House majority whip, responsible for rounding up votes on various bills and issues. In June of 2017, he was shot during practice for the congressional baseball team in Virginia. He survived after being in critical condition and returned to Congress in late September of 2017.

    This is not the first time resignation rumors about Ryan, of Wisconsin, have surfaced. Last December, he said he was "soul searching" about his leadership role in the U.S. House.  At the time, he denied the rumors of resignation, saying they were "irresponsible."

    Probably baloney, but we can always hope.

    Based on a tweet from Saturday, it appears Trump let the Republicrats snooker themselves. It sounded like he intends to use part of the money allocated for military spending for building a wall under the idea that protecting the border is a national security issue (it is). Since it was an "omnibus" bill (the same kind of money that a budget would have, but without going through the budget process) instead of a budget, a lot of the money is allocated without specifics for how it gets spent. A trick the DemocRATs were fond of doing with Emperor Hussein because then he could spend how they wanted him to without RepubliCONs being able to stop it. Apparently they thought it would work the same way this time. But they refused to allocate anything for a wall, so Trump (according to the tweet) will use the national security part of the budget to enhance national security.

    If the rumor about RINO turns out to be true, perhaps being duped by himself will be a contributor. It would be nice if that was the same with all of the participants because many more RINOs would go, as would nearly all of the DemocRATs who thought they were getting over.

    The tweet is probably true. On Friday a whole host of people claiming to be right-wing hated Trump because he sold out, they claimed. On Saturday most of the same people loved Trump because he helped the swamp trick themselves. Once again.
